Tong, tong, tong, Tongtong Chiang! What a sight to see two yellow lions dancing and entertaining guests! Yes, It was an auspicious day, as Dorsett Putrajaya Open House also coincided with the ninth day of the Lunar New Year of 2023. Many people celebrate the Year of the Rabbit this year with much joy, togetherness, and harmony after much uncertainty during the pandemic. Thus, I was very excited and happy to be invited to this event of Dorsett Putrajaya Open House, and experience this momentous affair with the Muhibbah theme.
